Thank you for visiting our
Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity Web site!
Please check back often for more information on the exciting work we are doing to bring affordable housing to our fellow Cache Valley residents. We plan to update this site as often as possible. Some things will stay the same but we plan to have updates and news as often as we can.
We have finished Naomi's house and they moved in just before Christmas. Thanks to all the people who worked on this house, donated their time, talents, and money to help make this a reality. We truly appreciate the many partners we have in this valley who are working to improve people's lives. We will probably start a new house in the spring. We are currently looking for new families to partner with. If you know anyone who lives in substandard housing, have them give us a call, we may be able to help. Thanks again.
We are working on the next house--it is in Hyrum for Naomi and her three kids. The foundation is being poured, then we'll need volunteers when we put up the walls and roof. Send us an email to get on our volunteer email@example.com
We are having a golf tournament in August--we need teams of four golfers, team sponsors, hole sponsors and prize sponsors. Give us a call or send an email if you'd like to donate.
Dr William Lye, who was the president of Habitat for Humanity Cache Valley passed away a few days ago at his home in Cedar Hills, UT. His funeral will be Sat, Dec 18 here in Logan at the Allen Hall Mortuary 34 E Center at 1:30. We extend our condolences to his wife Velda and his children. He was largely responsible for the success Habitat has enjoyed the past 12 years here in Cache Valley.
We are having a fundraiser with Global Village Gifts, 146 N 100 E, Logan, on Thurs, Dec 16 from 6-9pm. Come and see all the fabulous handcrafted items for sale there. Your support of this fundraiser helps Habitat Cache Valley and artists around the world.
We have chosen our next family--a single mom with 3 kids at home. We plan to break ground in the spring.
Once again Bank of Utah and USU Aggies basketball team is partnering with us to raise money--for every basket the boys score at home, Bank of Utah will give us $1. So, go root for the Aggies basketball team and help them run up that score! Go Aggies! and thanks to Bank of Utah.
Thanks to Angies for the fundraiser last month. We really appreciate your partnership.
On Dec 6 we are having a fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse. Plan on coming and supporting Habitat that night.
The office will be closed on Thursday Nov 11 and 12. Also Nov 25 and 26 for Thanksgiving.
We are having two
fundraisers in the next couple months co-sponsored by two great area restaurants. On
Tuesday, Oct 12 we are partnering with
Angies Restaurant to raise money for building and repairing homes. We will get 20% of the proceeds from dinner (from 5-10 pm). There is no special menu, although there will be some specials offered that night, no tickets to buy, no reservations to make. Just show up, order your favorite dinner and we get money! Support Angies and Habitat and raise some money! See you there!
On Tuesday, Dec 7, we are partnering with Texas Roadhouse for dinner also. More on that as the time gets closer. See you there!
We are still between houses--we are looking for more applications--if you know anyone who could use a Habitat house, please ask them to get an application. The next house will be in Hyrum.
During the summer we will have new office hours--we'll be open Monday thru Thursday, from 10-2. Closed Friday.
We are inbetween houses at the moment. We are looking for the next family to build for and the next lot to build on. If you or anyone you know could qualify for a Habitat house or if you have a lot that you could give us a good deal on, please let us know. To qualify for a house, you must be considered low-income, not have too much consumer debt, be able to afford the mortgage (this is not a giveaway program) and not have had a bankruptcy in the past 5 years. Give us a call for an application.
The dedication for Rachelle's house is scheduled for Saturday, Feb 27 at 11:00. All are welcome to attend. Give us a call for the address.
We are writing the mortgage for Rachelle's house now. We plan to have the dedication in February. Thanks to all of you who donated time, money and effort on this house. We truly could not do it without our volunteers and partners. We are currently looking for a lot or 2 to buy or get donated. If you know of someone who wants to get rid of some land, let us know!

Walls and Roof!
Okay, they say we are going to put up the walls and put on the roof on Monday and Tuesday, Oct 26 and 27. Sorry it is not a Saturday so that more people could help, but that is the day the contractor in charge said he could do it. If you can come help, bring work gloves and water and please let us know if you plan on being there so we can let you know if there is last minute plan changes like 2 feet of snow or something.
Another Change of Date!!
Sorry to say that we won't be working on Oct 3 either. We are waiting on the construction company and they can't do it that day. No date has been set as a reschedule. Get on our email list or keep checking here.
We have a whole bunch of
new HP Laserjet printer toner cartridges for sale. They are HP Laserjet 2420/2430. They are in the Staples catalog for about $125. We are selling them for $50 plus postage or you come get them.

We are starting on the next house! We have the foundation poured and plan to put the walls up and the roof on on Saturday, Oct 3, 2009. You are welcome to come help! Bring work gloves and water and we'll supply lunch and donuts. The address is 832 S Park Ave., Logan. Park Ave is 750 W.
Thank you to Weathershield for the $1250 grant they gave us! We truly apreciate our community partners.
We are done with Erin's house on Park Avenue. They have moved in and we had the dedication on Aug 22. Thank you to all the people who have made this go so fast and smooth. You are truly making a difference in the world!
Now it is on to the next house! We have chosen a family for the house we will build next door to Erin's. Rachelle is a single mom with one son. We hope to start on their house real soon.
We have recently received several grants. Thank you very much to Pepperidge Farm for the $2000 grant they gave us. We also got a rebate on the money we spent on lumber from the Softwood Lumber Grant program. Thanks to you all. The money will be used to help eliminate substandard housing here in Cache Valley.
In a recent newsletter, we incorrectly identified one of our grant donors. Cache Rich Association of Realtors gave us $2000. Sorry for the confusion.
